Billion graves is a method to record cemetery headstones. It works through an app for both android and iphone.
How does it work? You photograph the headstone with your smartphone, the location is recorded by gps, and you upload the data to the Billion graves site. The headstones can then be transcribed. It does not seem to overlap with the many other cemetery recording project done or underway. It looks like people are working their way fairly systematically through cemeteries.
There are 4 605 Australian headstones included - correction 23 April - it is 4 605 Australian cemeteries.
So have any of you tried it out? If so what did you think of it?
